Video tearing with Compiz & nVidia FIX
For many years, I had video tearing problem with all videos and Compiz/effects enabled.
Yesterday I've fixed with this "pass":
1) Sync to VBlank enabled on "OpenGL settings" and X Server XVideo settings.
2) Downloaded from "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/compiz/ubuntu
intrepid main #Compiz Fusion" last updates.
3) Open CompizConfig (downloaded from Synaptic) -> General -> General Options > Display Settings tab -> Refreshrate changed from 50 to 60Hz and Sync to VBlank enabled.
4) On "session" (application loaded on boot up of gnome interface), I've added a new command: "nvidia-settings -l".
Now World of Warcraft, Videos and all seem to be with Vsync ON.
I hope it's an good help/fix for all :P
This is my system spec:
Ubuntu 8.10 x86_64/amd64, nVidia 8800 GT, nVidia driver 177.80, LCD LG L204WT 60Hz, 2.6.27-9-generic kernel.
